so here is the deal: Ryan and Sara own a great litle bike shop in town called Kore. if you are in the BMX community you have probably heard of it. They have single handedly developed a super positive scene and provided a place for riders to meet and buy all the latest stuff here in AZ for a couple years now. Sara was diagnosed with a brain tumor and has recently lost her job and insurance that goes along with it. The bike community is really coming together on this one and is throwing a little jam to help raise as much money as we can to offset their costs.
so if you are in town 10/18, i encourage you to swing through and check out the festivities and buy a t-shirt. It should be a great time with a fixed gear crit through the neighboring parking lots. The race organizer has said that "the course is so tight it is going to be like hipster roller derby out there". there will be a BMX best trick contest going on in the infield while the crit is going on. Freeride MTB guys and galls are encouraged to come ride the ramps as well. If enough geared road bike guys show up i will organize a crit for them too.
This is going to be a great time, for a great cause.
see you there!!
